The early 90s was a pretty swell time to be a budding fan in the deep south : "One from the Vault" had been recently released, and suddenly "The Dead are playing Atlanta!" - and you could somehow make it to the Omni, find tickets, ingest real LSD for the 1st time, and experience this band performing Eyes of The World like this. JG did what he does, between 4:10-4:40, and, well, that was it for me.
Subject: I was there
Subject: AKG-568's make it awesome...
There were always a lot of FOTD at the Atlanta shows, like Dave Schools, Col. Bruce Hampton, Kevin Kenney, Warren Haynes, Pete Buck, Mike Mills, etc. - I could go on and on.
In my group was NORML activist Joe Ionno, and several local musicians. I can say that this show was a truly "crushing" experience, particularly after the Space when we drained our flasks of single malt, got fresh beers, and breathed in the atmosphere. In fact, the entire Omni had looked like a fog machine was running from the middle of the first set onwards...
Watchtower is just beyond words on this recording; Jerry sounds 15 years younger in style and energy, and he had seemed to be getting tired midway into the second set! After Watchtower, Jerry and Bobby just rock out on Standing on the Moon, and the incredible, concrete-shaking Lesh-tastic bass comes through fully on this tape throughout! You gotta use a good rig with some big speakers for playback - it's just amazing!
Finally, the double encore made it truly hard to call it a night... Guess that's why we went and saw the Shamen play a rave afterwards (one of the first raves in Atlanta)!
As we say in the Ole South, we was "woah out"...
Because of the excellent clarity and dynamic presence, and clean sound of this recording I give it a 5, with no reservations! It was a wonderful start to my 34th B-day weekend - with two more shows to go - and they were all so good.
